PC vs SEC Match Prediction - Jan 14, 2023

The Pretoria Capitals and the Sunrisers Eastern Cape played each other just a day back and will lock horns once more. The first match was won by the Pretoria Capitals by 23 runs but the actual margin of victory could have been much bigger. 

Will anything change when the sides compete for a second time, albeit at a different venue?

The cricket betting sites still have the Pretoria Capitals as the favorites to win. Let us see whether that matches up with our expectations. 

PC vs SEC Team Previews

Pretoria Capitals

Pretoria Capitals were propelled by a brilliant inning from Phil Salt at the top of the order who scored 77 from 47 balls without being dismissed. He did not get much support from the rest of the batters until Jimmy Neesham walked in at number 7. Neesham's 37 from 28 and Parnells 29 from 9 helped boost the score to what was eventually a winning total. 

We spoke about this all-round depth that the Capitals have in their lineup that can be very crucial in close matches. 

The Pretoria Capitals have a strong batting lineup and although players like Will Jacks, Rilee Rossouw, Theunis de Bruyne, and Senuram Muthusamy may not have scored in the previous match, they should not be counted out. 

The bowling lineup for the Capitals was very good. Ethan Bosch looks likely to be a part of the South African setup sooner rather than later and helps add quality to the bowling unit that already has Anrich Nortje and Wayne Parnell. Nortje's pace was tough to handle and proved too difficult for the Sunrisers in the previous match. 

Adil Rashid may have gone for some runs but he is also a proven player that we expect to bounce back strongly. 

Pretoria Capitals Playing 11

Philip Salt, Will Jacks, Rilee Rossouw, Theunis de Bruyn, Shane Dadswell, James Neesham, Wayne Parnell, Migael Pretorius, Eathan Bosch, Adil Rashid, Anrich Nortje.

Sunrisers Eastern Cape

Sunrisers Eastern Cape did a lot of things well in their previous match but was found to be a bit lacking in quality. Sisanda Magala and Otneil Baartman were impressive with the ball and were in fact the pick of the bowlers. Marco Jansen and Mason Crane did not have the best outing for their teams but Aiden Markram stepped up and picked two wickets with his part-time off-spin. 

Overall, the Sunrisers have a bowling attack that can adjust to the opposition and put up a pretty decent show. This is not the area that the Sunrisers will be most concerned with. 

The batting is where the Sunrisers Eastern Cape is a bit vulnerable. JJ Smuts played very well for his 66 and there were some good contributions from Tom Abell and James Fuller later in the match. Tristan Stubbs looked good also for the duration that he was in and could be a game-changer. 

Sarel Erwee, Jordan Cox, and Aiden Markram all looked a bit short on confidence and perhaps cricket. This is the core of their top order and the SUnrisers would be keen to see them in form as well.

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to bat first.

Pitch and Conditions

SuperSport Park is generally a high-scoring venue. It is perhaps where the flattest surface in South Africa is found. Batters can hit through the line and the short boundaries are always accessible as well. The weather conditions should also be ideal for cricket as no rain is forecast and clear skies lie in store. 

We think teams will target around 180 batting first. 

PC vs SEC Betting Tips

We think the cricket betting sites have overcorrected a bit after the previous match. The difference between the Pretoria Capitals and the Sunrisers Eastern Cape is not as much as the odds suggest. This is why we think this match is a good one to take a bit of a risk and bet on the underdog. 

Sunrisers Eastern Cape could very well end up causing a surprise in this one.

Bet on the Sunrisers Eastern Cape to win.

    Aiden Markram Total Runs

    Over 20.5 (1.83)


Markram has evolved into a pretty good middle-order batter that can control the tempo of the inning. He was out cheaply in the previous match and looked a bit out of touch but we think the Over/Under line being offered is quite attractive. We think Markram is bound to score big sooner rather than later.

    To Hit A Six

    Tristan Stubbs (1.53)


We love this betting market. Stubbs is the typical six-hitter who will look for the big hit as soon as he is in. At an over 50% return, we are happy to take a punt on him. Phil Salt is also available for the same price and could be worth considering.
